article imageMinecraft recreates all of Denmark

By Tim Sandle     Apr 27, 2014 in Technology
Copenhagen - The entire land mass of Denmark has been recreated, to scale, within the virtual world of the computer game Minecraft. The re-imaging has been endorsed by the Danish government.
Minecraft was launched in 2009 for PC and is now available on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Some 100 million gamers have registered on its official website, making the company $240 million in revenue in 2012. According to The Independent, the game allows users to build with pixelated blocks using a range of materials onto an online landscape.
According to the BBC, the Danish government has said that the maps were created to be used as an educational tool - suggesting "virtual field trips" to hard-to-reach parts of the country. The government is also encouraging Danish residents to "freely move around in Denmark" and "find your own residential area, to build and tear down".
This is not the only Minecraft news to make the headlines. The Digital Journal recently reported that the game is to be made into a movie.
